    Description

    Generals Sherman and Sully and the Headquarters Staff of the Department of the Missouri, in the Field at Fort Hays, Kansas. Taken about the time when General Sheridan telegraphed to Custer on September 24, 1868: "General G. A. Custer, Monroe, Michigan. Generals Sherman, Sully, and myself, and nearly all the officers of your regiment, have asked for you and I hope the application will be successful. Can you come at once? Eleven companies of your regiment will move about the 1st of October against the hostile Indians, from Medicine Lodge creek toward the Wichita mountains. P. H. Sheridan, Major-General Commanding."

    8.75" x 6.5" albumen photo, in very good overall condition. Small clip at one corner and light soiling on the mount. Vintage pencil ID of the principal officers, and paper loss and residue from old mounting on verso.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
